Rare gems tribute – Vol. 3

Geeta Dutt

We keep searching for rare and lesser heard gems of Geeta ji and on the eve of her 85th Birth anniversary we are pleased to share some rare gems. We will be posting five songs per each post. All of these have been collected from various sources over several years of painstaking efforts. We are grateful to our dear friend Aditya Pant for sharing these extremely rare songs with us. This is the third part in this series.

1) Geeta Dutt – Dim dikamk damroo – Shiv Shakti (1952), MD – Avinash Vyas, Lyrics – Munshi Sagar Hussain.
Here is another lovely rare religious song in relatively good audio quality.

2) Geeta Dutt – Ek gagan panth ka – Nanad Bhojai (1948), MD – Bulo C Rani, Lyrics – Pandit Indra.

Nanad Bhojai was also first made in Gujrati and then re-made/dubbed in Hindi. Once again all the tunes of the original Gujrati film were used in Hindi but again Avinash Vyas ji was not given the credit. The Hindi songs were credited to Bulo C Rani sahab.
This song is remade from the original Gujrati song Ek gagan panth nu pankheru.

3) Geeta Dutt – Gaaoon mai dil ka tarana – Nanad Bhojai (1948) – MD – Bulo C Rani, Lyrics – Pandit Indra.

One more song from Nanad Bhojai (original Gujrati song – te je kahyu.n te kyaa.n gayu.n) originally penned and composed by Avinash Vyas ji. The Hindi version is again credited to Bulo C Rani sahab

4) Geeta Dutt – Hum bhi jiye tum bhi – Meri Bhabhi (1948) , MD- R A Paaingankar, Lyrics : Gulshan Jalalabadi.
Very playful and rare song from the film Meri Bhabhi (1948) with chorus.

5) Geeta Dutt : Jab se uljhe nainwa – Pareeksha (1963) , MD – Pandit S N Tripathi, Lyrics: S R Saaz.

Pareksha (1963) was the last film for which Geeta ji sang for Pandit S N Tripathi ji. This is a very rare song.
